I have been to show after show even concerts in the Grand Opera House. The opera house is unique and one feels like they stepped back in time as it is kept as it was way back. The seats are fine, do not worry about being uncomfortable. Refreshments are available prior to the show and at intermission. The variety of... More

Great shows and concerts. Check to see who is playing when your in town. Small venue. Feels like you have gone back in time. Catch a meal or drink at many nearby spots before or after the show. You can also tour the House even if no show is playing.

When you buy your tickets do not be afraid of the "obstructed view" seats. There is a pole in front of you but you can lean to the side and see just fine. These seats are typically much cheaper than others around them. This is a beautiful venue and we have NEVER been disappointed in our seats or the entertainment.

We go here every year. Seating is a little tight, but not a bad seat in the house. Make plans to have something to eat nearby and enjoy your evening.

The venues that come there are always great. We always had good seats. You might check their schedule for the folks that will appear. We try and eat out and then come to The Grand.
